21.18 – A loft cleanup!

day-18We’re at day 18 of my 21 day declutter challenge.

Since I got on a bit of a roll yesterday, getting slightly bigger items out of the house, I figured why not continue on, with the “high real estate” items as opposed to all the teenzy weenzy items πŸ˜‰

Now, where in the world would I hide some of these slightly bigger items?

Well… why not try my “loft”?

Now I’ve gotta explain, I don’t actually have a loft… what I have is a small storage area built over my IKEA storage cabinets, just to utilize the space up to the ceiling.. pretty much a built in “loft”/storage area/”room” whatever you want to call it.

Since it’s right up to the ceiling there isn’t much height to store things.. but it fits a suitcase, a few boxes, my stored away golf set++

Even though it is kinda tiny, I still managed to find a few items tucked away up there:

18Β 20 pieces going out-the-door!

21-day-18-a

7 empty boxes that I had kept just in case…
1 cane that used to hang in my office… joke from ways back
1 bag that held my guest bed matress topper
4 backpack buckle replacement pieces
2 paper bags I have kept forever – you might guess why.. πŸ˜‰
1 sleeping bag
1 sleeping bag liner
1 travel bag for a full golf bag set
2 waterproof bags

20

I’m being joined in this challenge by:

– Melinda, at PurpleSlobinRecovery, is shredding paper… hmmm good idea..I really could need to do this.
– Grace, atΒ The CFO MOM Blog, had a wonderful weekend, and decluttered some stuff.
– Jen, at The Hidden Hoarder, is on day 17, she is just shy of 650 items. I can’t believe it…

    Oh my goodness – the loft, how brave! Even a pretend loft. We have our own junk in ours along with the stuff all our collective children (five between us) left behind to be collected ‘later’. I wouldn’t dare even go up there! We really do need to sort ours. You deserve a medal – there surely MUST be one for people who have nice empty or tidy, useable lofts or spaces pretending to be lofts. πŸ˜€
